Physicians Choosing Death for Their Patients
The Stories of Sheila Annette Lewis, Garnet Harper, and Many Others
I carry a very heavy heart these days.
Let me introduce you to Ms. Sheila Annette Lewis, a mother of four and grandmother of two, who died on August 24, 2023; she was 58 years old…
…and Mr. Garnet Harper, a husband and father of five young children, who died on May 22, 2023; he was 35 years old…
Both were objectively determined by medical professionals to be ideal candidates for life-saving transplants. Both were denied these life-saving surgeries because they did not get COVID-19 shots. In both cases, these individuals made informed personal decisions to avoid these shots. They conducted risk-benefit analyses and concluded that the known and ever-emerging risks outweighed potential benefits.
The COVID-19 shots should never have been made a requirement for anyone, let alone to receive a transplant. There are so many scientific and ethical reasons for this that I could write many pages about it. Suffice it to say that near the top of the list is the fact that a vaccine requires an intact immune system to both induce and maintain protection against a pathogen. But people undergoing major transplant surgeries have their immune systems potently and chronically suppressed to try to prevent them from rejecting their new organs!
Ms. Lewis even had evidence of robust naturally acquired immunity against SARS-CoV-2, which was proven a long time ago to be superior in every way, shape and form to the immune responses induced by the COVID-19 shots!
And there was a sick irony in Mr. Harper’s situation. He was deemed by our medical establishment to be unfit to receive an organ from someone else, even the kidneys offered by his own brothers! However, upon his death, his wife was cruelly asked to consent to donating her husband’s organs to others. It’s enough to make one vomit.
In both cases, it was argued that the organs had a greater chance of being ‘wasted’ if put into ‘unvaccinated’ individuals because they might die from COVID-19 sooner than a ‘vaccinated’ recipient. But, ever-emerging data suggest that those who have received COVID-19 shots, especially many doses, are at least as likely to be hospitalized and die, and are almost certainly more susceptible to getting diagnosed with COVID-19.
I am not going to belabor the science. But, as an expert vaccinologist I can assure you that the weight of the scientific evidence supported Sheila and Garnet having good reason to question the effectiveness and safety of the COVID-19 shots. Nobody subjected to these shots were ever entitled to fully informed consent. We know that many concerning data, or lack thereof, were revealed after the fact through freedom of information requests and other means.
One might even go so far as to contend that Ms. Lewis and Mr. Harper may have been murdered. Although it may sound extreme, this is based on a search of “murder, definition” on the search engine ‘Duck Duck Go’, which yielded…
“The killing of another person […] with recklessness manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life.”
Unfortunately, there are many other cases like these ones that have occurred around the world. They must stop. The science supports stopping this insanity and I would think that basic ethical principles and constitutional rights would add even greater weight.
I read a great article about a couple of prominent Canadian politicians decrying these medical malpractices as a ‘failure of medical ethics’; one of these individuals could be Canada’s next prime minister.
Very recently, a military tribunal deemed Canada’s COVID-19 ‘vaccine’ mandate to be unconstitutional. Specifically, they cited a breach of two aspects of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. This is refreshing to see after witnessing this venerated document being trampled by all levels of governments and courts for the past several years.
There was also a recent decision in the Superior Court of Quebec that rejected the idea that employees who lost their jobs “were not forced to be vaccinated”. Although the court accepted that there was a theoretical choice about whether to accept the vaccine, they very reasonably concluded that "the consequences of a refusal are such that this choice is not really a choice". This is so important. In Canada, court cases related to COVID-19 have been repeatedly dismissed due to claims that people were presented with a ‘choice’ when it came to COVID-19 mandates. So, constitutional law was not considered relevant. But, the Superior Court of Quebec finally nailed it. It is not about providing a ‘theoretical choice’. It is about providing people with REASONABLE choices. Forcing someone to choose between an experimental medical procedure, for which the safety and effectiveness are debatable, and their livelihood does not constitute a reasonable choice.
In the cases of Ms. Sheila Annette Lewis and Mr. Garnet Harper and many others, the ‘choice’ they were offered was the COVID-19 shot or death. There was not anything reasonable about this.
These cases were overseen by teams of physicians. These are people who presumably began their careers with an intent to heal in a nondiscriminatory way. Now these physicians seem content to take their medical doctorate-level understanding of vaccinology, which is overly superficial, and use it to recklessly implement nonsensical ‘vaccination’ requirements that place illogical preferential value on a subset of lives. All while reasonable and concerned experts are censored.
Over the past couple of years, Canadians were encouraged to develop and nurture unscientific fears and hatred directed towards the so-called ‘[COVID-19] unvaxxed’. This was modeled and propagated by prime minister Justin Trudeau and was then enthusiastically embraced by a shocking number of people. It has created a divided Canada. It also ultimately led to the deaths of Ms. Sheila Annette Lewis and Mr. Garnet Harper.
The concept of medical ethics in Canada is badly broken.
To the families and friends of Sheila and Garnet, I offer my sincere condolences. So do my family members, friends, and colleagues that I have talked to about this. Your loved ones made sound, science-backed ethical choices that should have been respected by their attending physicians and Canadian courts. May their strength and courage be the foundation upon which medical ethics get restored in Canada.
